Fortnite Season 6 New Weapons:

HYPEX who is a prominent leaker well known among the Fortnite community recently said that the Pump Shotgun will be returning.

He also revealed the names of the new upcoming weapons in Fortnite Season 6.

In a later Tweet, he also showed us the pictures of the upcoming weapons including some new consumables, and abilities as well.

In the above Tweet, we can see all of the new weapons in Fortnite Season 6. The first on the list is the Primal Assault Rifle. This will replace the Common Assault Rifle from previous seasons of Fortnite. The Primal weapon set also includes a pistol, SMG, and what seems to be a Drum Shotgun Primal variant.

Then we have some bows with various effects. Some of the effects include stink, flame, shockwave and explosive, etc. We can also see some new consumables and some new possible craftable items that might be used to upgrade or modify weapons in Season 6.

And last but not least we can see the possible two new Mythic weapons or items. The first one is a pair of boots that is theorized to give a massive jump height boost and Hunter’s cloak that might grant the wearer invisibility similar to the Predators cloak.
